How to update firmware for Corsair Force GT SSD on Windows7 - video tutorial

Hi friends, in this video tutorial will show you how to do firmware update for Corsair Force GT SSD, this method can be used on almost all SSDs from Corsair.
A firmware update can bring a high level of performance of hardware can enable new features or fix some small problems and incompatibilities, most often firmware update adds compatibility with other components. At launch hardware enters the market with versions of drivers, firmware or BIOS immature, that because of the pressure that the market / competition exerted. Group Posts by beta testers employed by companies can not discover any bugs in real life things are more accomplices, users encounter problems and report or complain on forums, manufacturers shall acknowledge and fix bugs . So companies bring any updates via the update firmware, BIOS and drivers.
The operation must be carefully prepared, we need to ensure that the package that you download is appropriate, also need to have AHCI-activated and might like to use Windows 7 if you have not yet activated AHCI, I advise you to do we have created a tutorial AHCI enabled operating system installedThis method if you use a Windows already installed. If you have not yet installed Windows, enable AHCI the BIOS before installing the OS. Those who have no chipset that supports AHCI, will have to make update firmware using Linux if you want it please ask the comments box and I or my colleague Adrian we realize that tutorial.
After I downloaded the package to update the firmware on Corsair forumMust extract it somewhere handy, I did extracted desktop, then we must launch executable folder for it we can detect SSD. If SSD our website will not be detected will have to change driver AHCI used if we ms AHCI will install the driver AHCI CD / DVD motherboard if you do not have CD / DVD drives, search on website motherboard manufacturer.
If all goes well and SSD drive is detected we move to update, in this phase we have to check the signature detected by the utility and choose the file suitable for our drive, exactly as explained in the tutorial.
Careful
The update of the firmware must be performed with maximum attention, the flash is irreversible, if something goes wrong we can choose an SSD unworkable on Romaneste a dead ssd.
The proverb "Measure twice and cut once" fits perfectly when it comes to such an operation, so be very careful!

  1. hi Cristi… please do a tutorial about MapsGL from google

  2. Let's say I have a 40 GB SSD and a hard disk 50GB. Can I 2 partition on the SSD, C and D and the hard disk still a partition E of 50 GB (I ave 3 partitions in Windows would be on C, ssd, a 2 slope all the ssd and 3 hard disk )? or have only a GB SSD and do 40 2 partitions, C and D? ssd question is whether the order is placed and had only operating system disk storage space would be.

  3. I respectfully greet you Cristi and all visitors. I also have a small problem with an ssdde at corsair nova v32 series that doesn't want to be seen in the bios and obviously not in windows. I had win7 on it, it didn't want to boot and I reinstalled win. with the thought of cleaning it and reusing it, but it was as if the wolves had just eaten it! Do you think I have any chance of recovering it with any tool? I know it wasn't something brilliant but it's only a year old and… look, it turned the corner. I think it already has a guarantee, but maybe it's the problem of some software, I'm thinking and maybe an update will help me. I understand. So what would be the solution? In the case the cables are checked and everything is ok

  4. Cristi, the laptop I am not function in AHCI bios than IDE is a ICH8M, but if you install Intel Rapid Storage is installed smoothly, but I msahci at the windows and go to get my SSD or HDD I leave with him? S Adrian now to do that tutorial that nobody knows when it is important. (Linux Firmware)

    Speaking vb SSD, I mean can know why or scumplit so bad HDDs HDD 1tb 400ron, now 2 days I got a Samsung 1tb with 240ron, guys who have the time to do and 1000ron remain them in stock. I want to mention that I have not much space, what do you recommend to me a reliable hdd to withstand long, why choose Samsung, Hitachi or the 1tb WDC?

      Hello, their price increase is caused by the floods that hit Thailand in October and that affected production concentrated in the hard disks. By default, import prices are rising in the near future.

      And I recommend to wait and go on Samsung F3 of 1 TB / 500GB.

  5. We salute. I bought an SSD Corsair Force Gb SATA 3 60. And your tutorialu u understand that my SSD is one stupid not to 7 million that has Trim technology.
    I took it this year, he makes about 550 lei and I got a promotion for 450 lei. it seemed ok to me this ssd because it has sata 3, my laptop has sata 2 it's an acer aspire 8735g from 2009 it also has ahci. I took those steps with disabling defragmentation, indexing… etc. I can do it faster… ..firmware update, would it be useful? I understand that an ssd is worse than an hdd if it doesn't have Trim. Ciuadat I didn't expect this because the hdd has sensitive discs, I say shocked, pretentious, it can damage the reading heads, portuins on the disc with badges… it's mechanical. I thought that ssd is something you have for life that it is a memory and it should not wear out according to my logic yes you know better. Thanks

      SSDs are a relatively new technology. I do not know where you deduce that you have to offer lifetime warranty or that you have to take a life. Nothing on this planet you're not a life, nothing is guaranteed for life. SSD technology is just beginning and evolves quite rapidly. If not every SSD SSD write on it means it's super fast, high quality guaranteed or your life. Update firmware will not help you to have TRIM technology. If it did not come natively with this technology, you will not be able to have any of the firmware update is 5000. There is information on the internet about SSDs and their technologies, comparisons, SLC and MLC means, what help, how important is that SLC or MLC best. If you do not want to search and get information on products before you waste your money then you will have everything to lose.

    Can a firmware update be performed on an SSD if the operating system (Win7) is running on it? or is it more recommended not to have the boot partition on the SSD ??? thank you for the advice…
